City/town information

Buford is a city in Gwinnett and Hall counties in the U.S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 12,225.[5] Most of the city is in Gwinnett County, which is part of the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta Metropolitan Statistical Area. The northern sliver of the city is in Hall County, which comprises the Gainesville, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area and is part of the larger Atlanta-Athens-Clarke-Sandy Springs Combined Statistical Area. The city was founded in 1872 after a railroad was built in the area connecting Charlotte, North Carolina, with Atlanta. Buford was named after Algernon Sidney Buford, who at the time was president of the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway. The city's leather industry, led by the Bona Allen Company, as well as its location as a railway stop, caused the population to expand during the early 1900s until after the Great Depression had ended. The city operates its own school district, the Buford City School District, and has been the birthplace and home of several musicians and athletes. Various tourist locations, including museums and community centers, the largest mall in the state of Georgia, the Mall of Georgia, and Lake Lanier Islands are in the Buford region.

Walking distance from my house. Good for walking, running, cycling, and hiking!! I love it here the most. The Ivy Creek Greenway is a 3.4-mile multi-use trail under construction in the cities of Buford, Georgia, and Suwanee, Georgia, in the United States. In 2014, a 1.5-mile section of the trail was added and includes two boardwalks, an overlook, and a 270-foot cable bridge spanning Ivy Creek. On February 27, 2018, the greenway was designated as one of the signature trails of Gwinnett County.
